Tessa Schurgers on her e-bike

"What a breeze! Not even those wintry gusts could slow me down"

Tesse Schurgers works at De Beyart nursing home and took part in the ‘Ontdek de e-bike’ (‘Discover the e-bike’) campaign. She speaks about her experience.

‘From 15 to 22 November 2016, I tried out an e-bike as part of the “Ontdek de e-bike” campaign run by Maastricht Bereikbaar. The trial only lasted a week, sadly, but during that time I commuted four kilometres every day. I really enjoyed using my e-bike. It was such a breeze! Not even those wintry gusts could slow me down.

There is no denying that you're less likely to want to drive after taking part in this scheme, as travelling by e-bike is a much easier way to get wherever you want to. Even after the trial period, I’ll definitely keep on using my e-bike.

It’s brilliant, and I would encourage everyone to take part in the campaign. It's very easy to do and the instructions are very clear. I've recommended “Ontdek de e-bike” to my friends and family.’
